Almost every time you acquire a new program from its developer you also get an activation key. If you lose this relevant information from your PC, you might need to contact the developer for a solution or even buy the product again. Recover Keys is a program that helps you keep a record with the activation keys from almost any application within your PC.

A great feature of this program is that you get to choose from various computer scanning modes. From a simple computer scan to a Windows registry keys checker, this application manages to find and display the license information for all installed programs. You can then export the details to a new document or print them directly from Recover Keys's interface.

The application comes with a wide range of features that help you get the exact results you require in a minimum time. For instance, the built-in search engine lets you find any activation key within moments and the Filter option allows you to arrange the program titles in an alphabetical order for clearer view.

The only thing I don't like about using this program is that you can't password-protect the exported document. A file encryption option wouldn't hurt as any user can access these files and use these activation keys without my permission.

To conclude, I find Recover Keys to be a great solution for backing up the activation keys for installed programs. It not only finds and displays license information for the applications within my PC, but it can also scan other newtwork computers. Therefore, it's definitely worth a try.
